HSHC Access to Care Grants are one-year matching grants of up to
$20,000, supporting community-based initiatives in the U.S. that
provide dental care and ultimately serve as a dental home to
underserved/limited access children. Special consideration will be
given to programs supporting the age-one dental visit and providing
care to special needs patients.
HSHC funds may be applied to cover costs of dental care, clinic
supplies and instruments, patient/parent/caregiver education
materials, take-home supplies (toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.),
salary, education and/or outreach to recruit dentist participation
in program activities or other activity with clear, direct impact
on child oral care and a direct link to the dental home.
